Quote:
With more people rejecting traditional sources of information and the internet giving rise to a variety of alternative worldviews, the granddaddy of all conspiracy theories is enjoying a renaissance and Colorado is the epicenter.

Thousands of YouTube videos claim the world is flat, gravity is uncertain, space is fake and the curvature of the planet is an optical illusion. Followers say this ruse is perpetuated by a powerful cabal determined to make humans feel small and powerless.

A conspiratorial mind-set and a deep current of religious ideology permeate the movement, which preaches that Earth was created by design, not by accident. As evidence of its shape, some reference Bible verses touting “the four corners of the Earth,” “foundations of the Earth” and Earth being God’s “footstool.”

Many of the most popular flat Earth videos come out of Colorado, host of next year’s Flat Earth International Conference along with the Colorado International Flat Earth Film Festival.

Everyone knows the Earth is a hollow sphere, and we live on the inside. Get with the times, people.

My favorite quote from these numbnuts: "gravity is uncertain".

Really? I have an experiment for you. It involves the Empire State building, and a test involving your body.

I kid, I kid.

The guy who thought the sun was only 3000 miles away.

*sigh*

Why Colorado? I always thought the folks there were sensible. And no, these long-term delusions cannot be blamed on cannabis.

I like the line and title of a Star Trek episode: "For the world is hallow and I have touched the sky."

I have a theory of my own. Push back only enhances the appeal of the Flat Earth theory. Feeds those trolls. They're not for real, they're playing the old exciting game of outrage.


My response to them, and I have indeed encountered them in RL, is:

Yawn!




It's round about about nap time.

thats great sam and i agree except these fucks are annoying and its not a game to them.
the LDS doesnt game...they want the great basin to sell to mining.
SLC-LDS rules the basin for some fuck reason they bought. hatch etc.

so anyhow if it is them behind this stupid shit it can ONLY be a political game for mining rights.

Actually the world as we know it as well as all of you do not exist. You along with World History is just part of a dream I am having. In a few hours I will be waking up and all of you will no longer exist. I have to quit eating before bedtime.
